[PATCH 0/3] rcu - removing superfluous rcu_read_lock_held check

hi,

the rcu_dereference_check is defined as

  #define rcu_dereference_check(p, c) \
     __rcu_dereference_check((p), rcu_read_lock_held() || (c), __rcu)

so the caller does not need to specify rcu_read_lock_held()
condition.

Several places in kernel are spcifying rcu_read_lock_held as
rcu_dereference_check condition parameter.  I separated them
into 3 patches:

1/3 - cgroup - removing superfluous rcu_read_lock_held check
2/3 - kernel,cred,kvm,security - removing superfluous rcu_read_lock_held check
3/3 - net - removing superfluous rcu_read_lock_held check


sry if I might missed or added somebody wrongly to recipients

wbr,
jirka
